Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Philly Spectrum May 2nd 2009

I don't know what everyone is listening to but while there were some really smoking segments, overall this show and everything else I've listened to is just O.K. and some of it has been pretty boring/poorly played.

From my vantage point it sounded like Warren and Jeff were playing circles around the rest of the band. The drummers were clearly out matched to keep up with it all.

The previous comment made about the band sounding leaderless came through in the playing as well. At some points, and usually when they got something good going, they just either lost their way, or played themselves to a point they didn't know how to get back.

All in all it was really fun, and the last Spectrum show was a great event to have attended, but if you want to listen to a band play Grateful Dead music really well you're better off spending 30 bucks to see Dark Star Orchestra.
